161 September 2014 2017 Bears of Brooks River book page 71

Adult Male

Year First Identified:  Subadult in 2009

Offspring Of:  Not known at this time

Darting Attempts:  There we no darting attempts (successful or unsuccessful) in 2016 or 2017 by Ranger Michael Saxton for the genetics study.


Identification:

161 is a semi-large, mature adult and is comparable in size to 83 Wayne Brother and 868 Wayne Brother (deceased October 2015).  He has a dark coat, a thick and blocky muzzle, and a large round scar on his right hip.  His ears are rounded, light-tipped, and perch on the top of his forehead.

Distinctive Behaviors:

161 fishes the cut bank and lower Brooks River.  

Little information about 161 is contained within Katmai's ID records.  Like 879, 161 seems to only use Brooks River in the fall.  It is unlikely that 161 uses Brooks River in July, since the large scar on his right hip is so identifiable.  

In 2014, 161 was observed participating in extended bouts of play with 83 Wayne Brother and 868 Wayne Brother (deceased October 2015).
